What was your inspiration for originating Little Looms?
Little Looms came into existence six years back in 2014. The idea sprung when we as mothers were furnishing the nursery for our little girls. We discovered that there was a paucity of good quality kids rug in the market. The market was flooded with machine-made synthetic rugs but nothing which was chic and exclusive! The idea to design rugs instantly popped. We wanted rugs to be not just plush but interactive and playful for little children. We took inspiration from our own kids and their peers for the designs to befit their age. The rugs were an instant hit!
Coming from a family who was into carpeting in the past, Roohi and Arshi attained some precious knowledge to build Little Looms right from scratch. The guidance from elders with technical knowledge and expertise helped propel forward in their venture.

What is the process and duration involved in creating a rug?
Weaving a rug is like creating a beautiful piece of art. It’s a collective reflection of the passion and dedication of our designers, weavers, craftsmen, and all the people involved in its making.
A lot of processes are involved in weaving a hand-tufted rug. Spinning of the yarn, weaving, hand embossing, binding the edges and finally finishing the rug. It requires the expertise of skillful artisans. Depending upon the size and intricacy of the design, a rug can take days to finish.

Tell us more about the material you use in making these rugs and which material do you recommend to our readers?
The weaving of Rugs by adept craftsmen makes the rugs at Little Looms far more durable than machine-made rugs. Our rugs utilize natural materials such as wool, cotton, and jute. These natural fibers are eco-friendly, long-lasting, and release no harmful gases into the environment over time. These rugs can be used throughout the year!
Wool is a rich and renewable fibre, making it the ultimate sustainable material. A Wool rug is flame-retardant and water-resistant. It even has antibacterial/microbial properties, making it a great choice for those suffering from asthma or allergies. Wool as a material is 30 % more stain-resistant than other yarns as it has high protein and moisture content.
